2020-2021 Testing Information Postponed due to COVID-19

  • As part of the Redlands Ready Commitment, and with the use of Local Control Accountability (LCAP) funds, RUSD is able to provide students with increased access to college by funding the majority of costs for AP, PSAT, and SAT testing.

    $5.00 AP Testing

    AP tests will cost $5.00 for all RUSD students enrolled in RUSD-AP courses, and RUSD will cover all remaining costs associated with AP testing.  For students wishing to take non-RUSD AP tests, they will be responsible for all costs.  All AP students are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to work toward future college success.

    Registration for AP-testing occurs on the high school campuses during spring semester.  Students should refer to their high school websites, bulletin announcements, and counseling centers.


    FREE PSAT for All 7th - 11th Grade Students

    On October 16, 2019, all RUSD 7th-11th Graders will take the PSAT on their school campuses during the school day.  STUDENTS WILL BE REGISTERED AUTOMATICALLY AND DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER IN ADVANCE.

    Participating in the PSAT school administration:

    •    Allows students to test in a familiar environment.

    •    Provides a testing time within the school day.

    •    Provides a glimpse at one’s college readiness, including strengths and weaknesses

    •    Provides specific practice for the SAT

    •    Connects students to AP-course suggestions, which students may then consider for junior or senior year

    •    Connects students to free, personalized SAT-preparation from Khan Academy

    •    Connects students to potential colleges, as well as scholarship opportunities.


    FREE SAT for All Juniors and Seniors

    On October 16, 2019, all RUSD Seniors, and on March 4th, 2020, all RUSD Juniors will take the SAT on their high school campuses during the school day.  STUDENTS WILL BE REGISTERED AUTOMATICALLY AND DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER IN ADVANCE.

    Participating in the SAT School Day:

    •    Allows students to test in a familiar environment.

    •    Provides a testing time within the school day.

    •    Increases opportunities for students to attend college.

    •    Can be considered an “opportunity search”, as SAT scores and student profiles are matched with colleges and scholarships nationwide.

    •    Helps students make a more informed decision regarding their future, and opens doors for many different opportunities.

    Juniors are also highly encouraged to participate in the school day administration of the PSAT/NMSQT on October 16, 2019.  The National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT) not only provides students with preparation for the SAT, but students’ scores are used to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Additionally, students have their scores shared with selected colleges as a first-step toward their college selection, and students who take the PSAT will also have access to personalized online Khan Academy SAT-prep. 

     


    Each high school has information regarding sign-up deadlines and fees for AP testing, and more information about PSAT and SAT testing can be found on the school websites, as well as in the Counseling Centers.
